End of WA/OR ATV sticker reciprocity
Do you ride in Oregon? If so, note that recent law changes require that everyone (that means us WA state riders) need to have OR ATV stickers. OR residents must also get WA permits.
Oregon stickers can be purchased online for $10. https://www.oregon.gov/oprd/ATV/Pages/ATV-overview.aspx

A big thank-you to The Today Foundation!
The Today Foundation encourages athletics and outdoor youth activities. We are going to apply their generous donation of $1,000 to revitalizing the kids riding area next to the staging area. Watch our facebook page for work party dates. We will be fixing fencing, adding signage, grooming the trails, etc. Bring your kids to help test out our changes!

He’s got some great bragging shots of you to share with your friends who think you’re crazy to get up early and go race in the snow and mud on New Year’s day!
Hangover Results are Up
Results are here – check our Hangover page for positions and lap times.
Thanks to everyone that came out and raced!
Racing and Camping at the Hangover
Looks like studs will be the answer for this Hangover – we’ve got an inch or so of slushy snow on the ground right now, with more snow in the forecast but warmer conditions coming too. Get those machine screws in your tires, it’s setting up to be a slippery muddy one for the record books!
To help you get here and get set-up and comfortable, the gates will be open starting Friday around noon and stay open until 9pm. Campers are welcome to stay until Sunday, so you can hang around and don’t have to leave right after your race! Can’t wait to see you here!
Thank you to our Sponsors
A huge thank you to our generous sponsors! Their support helps keep this awesome event going. Please mention you appreciate their sponsorship of the Hangover when you visit them and support these businesses that support riding and racing!

Yes!! The Hangover is back – the Jones Creek Trail Riders are gearing up to hold a Hangover Scramble this New Year’s Day. Spread the word and get your studded tires ready, this is going to be a blast!
We’re simplifying things this year – no side by sides will be racing, it will be a bike and quad race only, and we’re skipping the endurocross. This will be more like an old-school scramble in the field and hills. There’ll still be plenty of mud, snow, ice and fun!
We’ll be sending out the link for registration in the next couple of weeks, so be watching for our email or keep checking this website or our Facebook page. We can’t wait to see you there!
Bridge update (Jones Creek Trail)
You may have heard that the bridge across the last creek as you approach the staging area on the Jones Creek trail (aka “A” Loop) was destroyed by unauthorized vehicles. The Jones Creek Trail Riders and the DNR are jointly working on a solution to rebuild the bridge to environmental standards. We’re looking at a bridge solution that will last and also act as a filter to keep over-width vehicles off the trail.
Unfortunately, in the short time the trails have been open this spring, there are already signs of users on this trail crossing the creek, building make-shift bridge sections, and ignoring the detour signs. PLEASE STAY OUT OF THE CREEK! We cannot stress this enough – the environmental impact of riding thru the creek and tearing up the banks is critical and causes so many setbacks to our rebuild plan.
We are working on a re-route that will keep riders off the road as much as possible, and hope to announce that opening soon, but in the mean time, please please use the road detour to get to the staging area at the end of your ride. Thank you!
Pick Up The Burn, keeping your forest clean
If you’ve been around Jones Creek very long, you know there’s a great need to keep trash dumping out of our forest. Every April, the DNR and many clubs and individuals participate in a clean-up event to pick up trash dumps all over the Yacolt Burn. This year saw smaller attendance than usual, but we still succeeded in gathering quite a bit of garbage. Thanks also to the many individuals that practice “pack out more than you packed in” throughout the year; your continued efforts are much appreciated!
